Most businesses using lasers do not have employees who are highly knowledgeable about the safe use of lasers and require outside help from time to time. In addition in many situations, such as Cosmetic and other Clinics using lasers, the regulatory authority requires that a Certificated Laser Protection Advisor is appointed. In all situations the function of the Laser Protection Advisor is fourfold:
- To act as an external source of expert advice on laser safety matters
- To ensure that the client’s lasers are used, and continue to be used, in a safe manner
- To help the client achieve compliance with applicable laser safety regulation
- To help the client satisfy the applicable regulatory authorities (eg Care Quality Commission, Health & Safety Executive etc) that lasers are being operated safely
The exact method of operation and the type of expertise required of the Laser Protection Advisor (LPA) varies depending on whether the client is a Laser Clinic (Cosmetic, Dental, Health etc), a Medical Establishment, a University or other Business.
